SEEING POLKA DOTS!!!

SEEING POLKA DOTS!!!

Two-piece (and polka-dots) outfits have been all the rage this season…whether it be crop/skirt or crop/pants. And I’ve been loving it! But because I’m a bit thick-waisted (is that even a real word?!?), I didn’t think it would look that fabulous on me. I’ve had this two-piece polka dot outfit for over a month hoping to find somewhere to wear it to. But because I’ve been in somewhat of a deep funk (more about that next month), I really haven’t done much or been anywhere. I tried shooting in this dress for a blog post but I just wasn’t happy with it. So I decided to give it another go because I am really loving this polka dot outfit.

Secret: This is actually a three-piece. There’s the skirt (1) of course. But the top part is actually a two-piece…the tube top (2) and the ruffles (3) are separate.

As you can see, the slit in this skirt doesn’t end! The slit starts at the waistband! So before I even think to wear this out, I will definitely have to stitch a couple of inches from the waist down!

The ruffle part of this top can be styled two ways: Under the armpits as seen here or as an off-the-shoulder top! Talk about versatility!

So what do you think of the two-piece and the polka-dot trends? Are you loving it as much as I am? Or are you gonna let this one slide? I’d love to know!

I know I haven’t been as consistent as I used to be. But I promise I will soon get back on track. The death of my fiance has been hard and has taken a toll on my emotional and mental status. Thank you so much for reading. I appreciate you and love having you here. And as always, have a beautiful day.

    I do love polka dots and has many of them. The one you are having are just awesome with the high split at the skirt. I dont have that color as most of mine are black and white polka dot. Love your posing so much. Great work.

    They say you can polka dots are only for new year’s. But no, I would say that polka-dots are classy and it has a bold statement.

      I never really thought 2-piece outfits would that great on me because I’m a bit thick-waisted. With this outfit, I honestly didn’t care. I just gave it a go!

    That is a cute outfit. I’m not sure I could pull it off as good as you do though.

    I’ve always loved polka dots and for me it never went out of fashion. Totally loving your 2 piece outfit here and its wonderful that the ruffles can be removed as well for the days / times you just want to wear the tube top.

      I guess so. But I don’t think I would have the confidence to wear only the tube top part. Maybe with a blazer. 🤔

    I really love the polka dots and the color of this outfit is one of my favorites. It looks like it would be so comfortable, too!

    Your outfit looks amazing on you. I am not as big on polka dots, so I will likely let this pass.

    I have had polka dot swimsuits, but haven’t tried it for more than that. I don’t think I would wear something like this since I don’t have anywhere to go as a stay/work at home mom, but it’s really cute!

      I understand being a stay-at-home mom. But sometimes you’ve gotta force yourself to get pretty and get out!

      I’m 5’6″ for reference it just barely hits the ground. So you would definitely have to hem this.

    This two-piece seems worth buying. The items you use match your outfit as well. Nice combination!
